Week of May 17th, 1999
When Quake 3 comes out what will you do with your Quake 2 files?
|I'm gonna delete it ALL! Q3 ALL THE WAY BABY!|
|I'm gonna buy a new harddrive to put it on and play both!|
|I am a harddrive god. My refrigerator alone has 12gigs. Space is not an issue.|
|I don't play Quake 2.|
|I don't plan on playing Quake 3.|
|I'll toss my Q2 stuff, but not Q1.|
|I'll toss my Q1 stuff, but not Q2.|
|Dude...Quake3 won't fit on a 3.5" floppy?|
|Quake 3! You mean there's MORE than just Wolfenstein!?|
VirginMary: Buy a new hard drive w00 h00
Darx: Look back in fondness and leave them where they are. Q2 still owns me!
Bastard: Bitch, Please! I have 32 gigs of storage! Bring on the games!
Cobby: Upgrade - upgrade - upgrade!!! Rent-a-geek coming for installation this week
Fargo: I'm gonna answer every question in a Jar-Jar voice. "Yousa say yousa still play Quake?"
Moltar: Quake 2 is still the best... until they BALANCE the weapons in Q3 as good as they are in Q2 it'll continue to be inferior.
China: I'll keep em; probably still need em for Beatdown.
dakkon: I'm gonna make one PHAT pak file.
crispy: I'm going to have Gamespy buy me a new hard drive. ;)
How come sometimes an answer shows up with no question, and one vote, and either says "0%" or "100%"?
|The PQ Poll is a bit weird. That's why we like it|
|crispy's been overclocking the servers again|
|Hax0ring. It's gotta be.|
|That's the ghost of polls past, putting in his two cents.|
|No doubt it's got to be some kind of conspiracy involving the Kennedy assassination.|
|Probably a script error.|
|Uhm. Hey...here's a new one... I don't care!|
Darx: Actually, dweomer, Hank and I have been messing around with artificial intelligence on one of our servers and we let it vote on the polls...looks like it's time to fix that!
Bastard: Oooooh, easy on the whole "crispy" thing. I think he's going to change his name again....
Cobby: Single bullet - nuff said
Fargo: "Jar-Jar banned form poll since Isa makea 'accident.'"
Moltar: Crispy is working on 10% brain power with 5% sleep while trying to maintain the last 2% of his sanity
dakkon: Can repeat that question?
crispy: Anyone notice that my cynical answer submissions always seem to get the most votes?
Do you support an enforced rating system for computer games?
|Yes, for an unspecified reason|
|Yes, I strongly support the idea.|
|Yes, but it needs to be very carefully enabled to stay fair.|
|Yes, but I'm not sure if it would work out in real life.|
|No, for an unspecified reason.|
|No, I don't think it would work.|
|No, it would end up being abused.|
|No, it goes against everything I stand for.|
|No, the people who aren't supposed to have it will just find a way.|
VirginMary: how many yes or no answers can there be!!!
Darx: Umm, sure, as long as no game is for people 28 years and older keeping me from playing!
Bastard: Ratings can suck my ass.
Cobby: I plead the 5th - or was it quart?? Litre?
Fargo: "Gamesa don't kill people! Jar-Jar killa peoples!"
Moltar: Society is going to hell in a handbasket strapped to a intercontinental ballistic missle.
walla: The original argument against ratings has been that places like WalMart won't carry adult titles. Traditional outlets are becoming dinosaurs, and an extreme rating is just another way to pimp your game :)
China: I don't think it would work; telling people they can't have something makes them want it more. I think parents need to be watching what their kids are playing.
dakkon: Enforcing games? HAH. Someone is getting bored.
crispy: God no. Nor do I support the one they use for movies, or for television. Ratings systems butcher creativity and are simply a quiet way to censor material. Whoah...got a bit serious there. Sorry!
Are you reading Gamespy's ongoing E3 Coverage?
|Didn't I tell you last week I don't know what E3 is?|
|Yeh, definitely. Gimme more!|
|Yup. Good stuff.|
|Yes, but I wasn't that thrilled.|
|Yeh, but it kinda sucked.|
|Yeh, but it was totally worthless.|
|No, but I'm going to right after I finish this poll.|
|No, but I will sooner or later.|
|No, and I don't really care.|
|No, and I'm glad I didn't.|
Darx: Why yes I am. Still looking for that article on how our booth got mobbed by angry t-shirt mongers...ugly.
Bastard: I say let's just play the games - let someone else read about them.
Cobby: How could someone not care about E3????? Blasphemy!!!!!
Fargo: "Yousa all hate E3, hmm?"
Moltar: Most of the people didn't care! See what the flood of crap games and unrealistic ship dates has done to the gamers.
walla: Nah, didn't read it. I know they really spent their time at the Play Pen watching strippers, and all the coverage was made up.
China: Don't care? Bitch, please. E3 rocks ass.
dakkon: Yep. E3 owned me so hard, I needed to remind myself.
crispy: Uh...I like...wrote it all and stuff. And btw - those of you who don't really care need to learn more about E3.
Do you like having assloads of potential answers to choose from, or would you prefer a more concise list that might exclude some possibilities?
|More! I personally have written in and complained when my choice wasn't available.|
|The more the merrier, man.|
|I like having lots. There's a better chance of finding an answer that reall fits.|
|Variety is nice, but some of these are approaching overkill.|
|Cut down on the answers, man. You can usually mold on of the major choices to fit your answer.|
|I don't mind having only a few choices, but I don't answer if my choice isn't there.|
|I want only "yes or no" questions.|
|I've never had a time when my answers didn't fit an available choice.|
|Jeez...you missed my answer on THIS question too!|
VirginMary: there's a typo in really hahahha
Darx: Quantify assload for me...is that like the amount of damage a quad and rocket launcher do?
Bastard: What?!?!?! look, consumers don't like too many choices. It's confusing and it's a barrier to a possible sale. Haven't I taught you guys anything? Woah, Did I just say that out loud?
Cobby: all of the above
Fargo: "Yousa say Ggaaahhhh--rrrkkk!" [Sound of fellow PQ staff members strangling Fargo]
Moltar: It needs more answers that start with "Your Mama's So".
dakkon: Can I please have a hamburger...but hold the ham.
crispy: with all of the complaints I get about answers not being included, I sorta expected these results.
RETRO POLL (05/17/97): Is quad a good item for Deathmatch/Teamplay games?
Original Results (05/17/97):
VirginMary: oh hell yeah, it's the only way I can actually frag!
Darx: Sure as long as it's not being used against me.
Bastard: Those new mercedes with the halogen headlamps always look like they have the Quad.
Cobby: quad yes - pent no
Moltar: Quad is for wimps... real men kill Quaded players with the basic weapon..
walla: Rocks for team games, totally ruins 1v1s
China: I think it's great for teamplay; don't prefer it for a one-on-one.
dakkon: The Quad is good for spilling gheysauce on each other's back.
crispy: Yes. And for god's sake, stop mailing me asking for more answers on the retro poll. I only present the ORIGINAL choices!
